The Premier League is back this weekend and we’re looking forward to Liverpool clashing with Manchester United
It feels like a long time since Laurent Koscielny handed Arsenal three precious points at Turf Moor, although we’re now crawling towards a Premier League weekend like a thirty traveller who has found a watering hole in the desert.
There are some top flight treats this weekend and we get started at Stamford Bridge where Chelsea and Leicester meet for the second time this season. The champions stormed into a 2-0 EFL Cup lead last month before Antonio Conte’s side claimed a 4-2 victory by the end of extra-time.
Arsenal host a Swansea City team now managed by Bob Bradley, while Manchester City and Everton meet in a north-west clash where the home side will sweat over the fitness of Sergio Aguero once again.
Tottenham look to continue their rich vein of form when they head to The Hawthorns, with Sunday’s matches taking place at the Riverside Stadium and St Mary’s, with Southampton strong favourites to beat Burnley.
On Monday, we have a tantalising fixture that pitches Liverpool against Manchester United and it will be interesting to see what tactics are employed by Jose Mourinho for this encounter.
Liverpool have torn Leicester and Hull apart at Anfield this term, with neither having an answer for how to stop the rampant Reds although it could be trickier for the Merseyside team against more stubborn opposition. Indeed, we’re surprised that Manchester United have been written off by the bookies already this season.
It’s also worth noting that Liverpool haven’t yet kept a clean sheet in the Premier League this term and this looks like an intriguing encounter to finish off the weekend.
